Hi, Have been lurking for quite a few week, lots of information to absorb ! But have come to a bit of quandry, and wonder if you could offer some advice. The trigger for looking at PJ's is twofold, firstly I have been offered a s/h Epson EMP-70 (think that is model no) for £600 plus spare bulb - it's from a collegue so I know the history. Secondly we currently have a 24" (don't laugh) widescreen tv, with DVD, but no speakers other than the TV ones. I am told that the Helms Deep scene in LOTR : Two Towers is one of the most breathtaking ever .... not on our telly it wasn't. Definately felt we were missing out on something, but it is fine for Corrie ! We are lucky in having two main "living" rooms, a kitchen / family room which has the TV in, and sitting room with hifi. Sadly permission was not given for a screen in the kitchen , it is quite big and has beams that are just perfect for mounting, but the oracle said "NO". Permission was however granted for something in the other room. The vision being something for watching DVD's only (so a dark room), that could be packed away when not in use. PJ likely to be on a coffee table, about 12-15 foot away from the wall. So a couple of questions. Should I be considering the Epson ? Review say it is quite noisy, and perhaps is not the most modern thing, perhaps a few more hundred spent on a newer model would be better ? And is this "pack away" idea viable ? Not after the ultimate "cinema" experience, but just something that is more involving that a postage stamp at the other end of the room ! Many thanks, N.
